Lizard Staff #1: Need advice on finishes.

07-24-2013 05:27 AM by ivan | 5 comments »

I am copying one of M. Pounders projects, his lizard cane. His work is amazing! I am just trying it so don’t laugh too hard as I try to carve and burn this lizard on a 5 foot staff. It is a limb from an orange tree that has aged about a year. it is carving very hard wood and it is very white. It burns OK but not a nice as basswood. My question to all of you is: How do I finish the staff? I want to stain it darker brown and leave the lizard natural or stain it Golden Oak. Has anyone ...

Keeping track of my wounds: 13 and counting...

09-01-2008 12:06 PM by David A. P. | 6 comments »

I decided at the very start of my woodworking adventures to keep close track of any injuries I managed to incur, in part out of curiosity—knowing that it’s a hobby notorious for its danger, at least in comparison to most other hobbies—and in part because I want to identify where I go wrong, so I can address the problematic action(s).So far, I’m up to 13 cuts. Of these, the breakdown by source is as follows: 1, flush-cut saw. 1, paint scraper. 1, bow saw. 1, ch...

Exercises in Artisanship #29: The spoon makers tote! Part Three and final!

10-02-2012 11:15 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

Hey friends, thanks for looking in again on what really is my final installment for this spoon makers tote! This piece went a little faster than I had originally thought it would go, but I had some time and inspiration so I went ahead with the flow of the tools. This is going to be much more of a practical piece to enjoy using, packaging some small tools, woods and spoons around. I left some tool marks with a fun and spirited opinion of wanting this work to look used and lived in. For me i...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #4: A few more pictures

01-14-2008 08:26 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I finished sanding the exterior portion of the box down to 320 grit. Then applied one coat of mineral oil. Boy did that make the grain standout. I used Mineral Oil because it has no affect on Barb’s allergies. Otherwise it would have to stay out in my shop for a month. The dimensions are, Height = 8” Width = 7” Depth = 4” I’ll add some beeswax, for the final coats. Now to finish making the drawer. The back & front will be entirely diffe...

My First Workbench #33: Leg Vise Chop Redux

08-23-2013 09:44 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Okay, so if you follow this blog, you’ll know that last year I built a leg vice and attached it to the workbench I built over the summer. The chop on this vice was simply two pieces of 3/4” pine, about 6” wide, glued together and shaped (with some crude tools I had at the time and zero knowledge of what I was doing). Then I carved my initials and the year of it’s construction (2012) into it and made a nice little handle out of poplar. Well, it works. ThatR...

New to the community and the craft. Hello everybody!

06-04-2011 05:50 PM by Ward Grant | 10 comments »

Hi all. What a fantastic village you all live in here. Very cool! I am new to carving and to your community. I love working with all the local woods available in the lower mainland. I have only transit for transportation so I scour the beaches and trails and river banks for pieces to call out to me to work with. I grew up in the north country and really miss seeing diamond willow. Are there any diamond willow stands in the GVA? I don’t desire to chop down any trees…I look ...

The old time woodshop journals #23: Why I make spoons

08-22-2012 11:56 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

The shop is filled with a wonderful strong scent of fresh Cherry wood and the mission is on to evolve a cut branch into a country spoon. Very interesting this country spoon making is, so many great “spoonists” with their different styles and approaches but I suppose my greatest influence so early on is Peter Follansbee. His episode this past season with Roy Underhill in The Woodrigh’ts Shop truely captured my creativity and fascination to have a go at this kind of work. If y...
